It all started with the Tooth Fairy.
I am lousy at playing the part.
I forget to put the money underneath her pillow.
My latest scene involved me leaving the tooth, which was in a sandwich bag, in the laundry room!
Since when does the Tooth Fairy do laundry? A girl can wish...
This latest spectacle got me to thinking about, not only the Tooth Fairy, but the Tooth Fairy's other friends. You know them, Santa Clause, and…Continue
“Do ya think the tooth fairy can make it tonight? It’s been three nights already. Just put the money in the case… “ - Stephen, age 9
The tooth fairy sucks. She does, simply because everytime she blows off my kid, I’m left holding the bag. Bad momma.
I replay our convo in my head, “Do ya think the tooth fairy can make it tonight? It’s…Continue

I made the mistake of Googling the phrase "tooth fairy rates" the other day and I was frightened. Depending on the area of the country, some children are receiving anywhere from $5 - $13 per tooth.…
At about this time last year, I wanted to introduce my son to money. But it was too early for him, as evidenced by the fact he would still mix the play money in his cash register with the real thing. So, we took a step back and waited.…

I cannot be the only one…who managed to fit in at least two weeks worth of work, chores, holiday to do’s, and family drama all in one week. I am not sad to see last week go, but before I kick it on it’s backside on the way out, I offer you this weekly wrap up.
In a mad dash to finish all of my holiday gift shopping, I made the foolish decision to visit the Downtown Disney shopping mall, my good intentions turned sour when I spent forty-five minutes being waved through overcrowded…

Yesterday my son lost a tooth. This was a shock because he lost four of his teeth really early (at 4 years old), then all his other teeth got comfortable. In the morning he mentioned his tooth was shaking a bit and by the time my husband and I got back home after grocery shopping we were told it was waiting for us on the counter. I asked him what he plans to do with it and he told me my mom gave him a quarter. So I told him…Continue
If I could take myself into a dark alley and kick my own ass, I totally would cause I seriously dropped the parenting ball the other night (once again). Yes, I completely failed my duty as the Tooth Fairy, y'all. Now I know that plenty of people have said that they, too, have forgotten a tooth here and there, but I swore that I would never…Continue

** It's kind of disturbing to hear your nine year old sing about having someone blow his whistle. (Yeah, thanks, Flo Rida.)
** I'm beyond thankful I'm not married to a politician.
** Fun-size 3 Musketeers are downright dangerous.
** My ass is gonna beep when I back up if I don't amp up my workout routine again…Continue

On Friday Luke and Matt were eating apples. Matt said "Ow, my teeth hurt!"
Uh-oh, I thought, he's finally going to lose a tooth! As it turns out, BOTH bottom front teeth are loose and as I looked into his mouth I saw *gasp* that his big teeth are already growing in…

I’ve always been afraid of General Anesthesia and most anesthesia of any type.
So much in fact that I’ve had a colonoscopy, a uroscopy, wisdom tooth extraction, unmedicated childbirth – the list goes on and on – and no, I’m not tough, I’m not macho – I’m terrified of going under.
I’ve found that none of these procedures have been unbearable awake.
And though I’ve had a couple of wisdom tooth extractions, I’d never had an impacted tooth removed while awake, and frankly I…Continue

** A successful night is when the Tooth Fairy remembers to do her duty AND even has change for a twenty! Holla!
** Nine year olds evidently need to be reminded not to stick jelly beans up their noses.
** It's amazing how a closed bathroom door means nothing to my kids until they're the ones behind it.
** I like road trips…Continue

As a parent, I'm trying REALLY hard to hold onto the whole believing in the Tooth Fairy thing for as long as is humanly possible. So when a kid's tooth falls out in this house? Well, I wanna be on top of that shit like white on rice. Unfortunately, however, I'm not always totally prepared for the curve balls that motherhood sometimes throws my…Continue

I’m not just another ordinary Tooth Fairy. I don’t just slip cash under kids' pillows. I also pull teeth. My kids' teeth and even their friends' teeth. Moms love this, as I save them a small fortune in dentist bills.
I come from a long line of tooth pulling Tooth Fairies. And I can say with great pride, my mother…Continue
